|Photos of Drew as he traversed the first sandbar to the ladder of|
the first island. After that, I lost him in the fog.

Check out these aerial views of the lightstation via an aerial drone camera, that someone posted on YouTube. Awesome! This gives you a great view of just where Drew walked through, although with the tide up, you cannot see the little sandbars and rocks he crossed to get to the final island.
|The top ladder is the first one that people have to climb up to island # 1.|
Then, there is a lovely little path that traversed island # 1.
There is a bridge that crosses over to island # 2.

Walking through seaweed strewn boulders to island # 3.
Head Harbour Lighthouse was in great shape. There was a tour guide (a 10th grader) who was quite knowledgable. Everyone was allowed to roam around the outside of the outbuildings. By the way, did you know that the red cross was painted on the east side of the lighthouse tower as a day marker for ships sailing in that part of the Bay? Cool...

Listen to Drew's recording of the Class-C diaphone fog signal! Click here to read a fascinating history of fog signals by the United States Lighthouse Society.
|Some of the rooms were incredibly tiny.|
|The lamp is a third-order fresnel lens. |
The original lens (bottom right) was broken when a bulb
was changed, not too long ago.
